Brendan Rogers, the manager of Liverpool, is concerned that referees are giving his side the short end of the stick when it comes to crucial penalty decisions.
Star forward Luis Suarez was controversially denied a penalty in Saturday's 5-2 win at Norwich, prompting Rodgers to express his frustrations.
- It was a stonewall penalty, I feel for the guy - I have to be honest - I think everyone in the ground knew it was a penalty, he said.
- If you look at Antonio Valencia last week, he got a penalty against us for barely any contact.
Rodgers said he feels Suarez is unfairly targeted by referees for diving.
- If Luis is a player that goes down, he would have gone down in the second half, Rodgers insists.
- It was a great piece of skill and the defender caught him but he stayed on his feet.
But the former Swansea boss tempered his outburst with placating words for match officials:
- There is nothing that we can do - I know how difficult a referee's job is, Rodgers said.
- You never hear me killing referees and officials. I want my players to respect them and I look to respect them myself.
